10 Floyd County Schools “Beat the Odds” in 2019

Ten Floyd County schools beat the odds in 2019, performing better than statistically expected on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI)

The CCRPI is Georgia’s statewide accountability system. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance. Beating the Odds (BTO) is a statistical analysis that compares a school’s actual performance on the CCRPI with the performance of schools with similar characteristics across the state. Characteristics include the school’s size, grade cluster, student mobility, and student demographics including race/ethnicity, disability, English learners, and poverty. Schools that perform higher than similar schools are considered “Beating the Odds.” It is important to note that schools that “Beat the Odds” may still have low CCRPI scores and/or gaps in performance.
